The property

A fabulous house in a fabulous spot, this property has style, substance and spectacular sea views. Sitting above Porthmeor beach this handsome holiday home has ample space for everyone to relax in. Sleep in luxury bedrooms then tootle down the hill for breakfast on the beach below. Flop about in the gorgeous sitting room or gather for informal lunches around the farmhouse table in the kitchen. Exquisite furnishings make for hotel like comfort throughout with grown up sofas, super comfy beds and crisp linens. On a good day you may even spot seals or dolphins in the bay below from the big bay windows. Outside space is limited but there is a little courtyard and a south facing roof terrace for catching a few rays. Unusually for St Ives the house also has two off street parking spaces, a real bonus for those in the know.

St Ives is home to four white sandy beaches so you can swim, surf and sunbathe to your heart's content. Lifeguarded in the summer months, Porthmeor and Porthminster play big brother to the smaller cove of Porthgwidden and the sheltered harbour beach, all surrounded by tempting turquoise waters. It is an easy five minute downhill walk into the centre of town where you will find galleries choc full of original art and boutique bargains. Enjoy coffees or cocktails on the waterfront or settle in to one of the many eateries offering seafood, snacks and of course the obligatory Cornish pasty but make sure you look out for the greedy seagulls!

On a clear day we recommend driving west along the coast road towards Sennen Cove and Lands End for incredible views and a good lunch at the award winning Gurnards Head Inn at Zennor on the way.
